Updates to the Toshinori Kondo website


December 28, 2010:
I moved the site some time ago from my Qube to a Windows Server 2008 machine that was humming in my garage. Today I moved it again. This time to my new Synologic DS211 NAS. I will add new information soon from albums like " Nohno - Limen" and "Levity Trio - Chopin Shuffle".

April 24, 2005:
I moved the site some time ago from the add-supported Tripod.com to my own server in my own domain.
I am running NetBSD on a Cobalt Qube 2 with 256 Mb ram: www.subsurfing.com/music/kondo
